Very cool thread, I’m glad I found it! I love reading and always try to find new books. Perhaps https://freebooksummary.com/category/quicksand-analysis thanks to this site you can find the answers you are interested in.
The Anatomy Zone (online) is one I like to use for looking up a specific question.
The Anatomy Coloring Book (actual book) is hands down my favorite. The color coding works for me, and the focus required to do the careful coloring helps me to focus. I redo it every 5 years or so.
I’ve never needed any motivation to study. At 7 or so I was reading our family encyclopedia for hours for the sheer pleasure of it. For me it is time and work and family obligations …. so I find I want something absolutely excellent as there is so much I want and need to do with the time I have.
what has lately been my most favorite tool is the Integral Anatomy Series by Gil Hedley which he very generously made available to everybody for free on YouTube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K68kC9R7THc.
When I first encountered the idea of watching the dissection of a cadaver, I felt rather squeamish about it but it has opened my eyes to the reality of a body far removed from the neat and orderly way commonly described in anatomy books.
